Thanks Leon,nice article !
I enjoyed reading it and all the comments too. Some of the comments got me thinking about why I like GPL so much.

   For me,GPL is a time machine and every time I load up a mod and a track
it transports me back to a much simpler time where the man was a little more important than the machine.
I become immersed in the setting of a track with wonderful surroundings,spectators and atmosphere. I almost feel like I'm actually there.
I find GPL does this better than any other racing sim. GPL is in no way modern but do we really need it to be ?
I for one,don't think so. This sim has tons of character and there's a good reason for this. The community !  
This community is what makes this old sim the gem that it is. Thanks to all the modders,track builders,supporters and SRMZ for making it possible
for this old sim to continue evolving into what it has become and what it will become in the future.

  Thank you for this :)

Really wonderful article, Leon! Although I'm not much into CanAm, I sure do hope this is a way for new blood to come into the fray :)

Same with others, great article, surprised to see it on RD a week ago, thanks Leon.

Also I feel those GPL is much harder than real thing claims are miss leading, maybe it's just me, since I find that rfactor2's BT20 is much harder to control than GPL's original 67 cars (rf2's physics is widely regarded one of the best atm).
